 Letter From the Professor - May 1, 2008

Spring Break is set to sell-out with less than three weeks to go!
Delegates are urged to book their places for CAP Spring Break as the ‘odds’ for securing places at this formidably popular iGaming event are looking slimmer by the day!

With almost all sponsorship and stands sold, parties booked, and CAP hotel Grand Resort calling “full house” on its online reservations page, the event is all set to strap in and jet off to warmer shores for a wild four days of hard work and hard play. Just make sure you’ve booked your seat!

With affiliates taking a 70% proportion of the 350 delegates already booked on, and new registrations coming through by the hour, CAP Spring Break 08 is going to blitz all previous records boasting the best turnout at a CAP Spring Break yet. The organizers said they are currently receiving 75 registrations on average per week and we are expecting demand to increase on an unprecedented scale in this closing few weeks so the CAP team is advising all current delegates to organize accommodation immediately.

For those of you who haven’t reserved a room at CAP’s stunning 5* beach front venue, Grand Resort, there are still a handful of rooms with the official booking agent Margaret Croxson at IHC venues. Call 00 44 (0) 1628 484614 or email

This year’s CAP Spring Break is unique in that it coincides with Poker Affiliate Program’s first annual Poker Conference, an interactive 2 day event encompassing roundtable discussions, speaker sessions, a vendor exposition, and its own exclusive networking events. The crossover between these two massive events means that the week beginning 19th May will be an oasis of online gaming professionals and a networking must for anyone who wants to get somewhere in this industry.

Louis Fabiano, founder of CAP commented on this huge take up – “We always expected Cyprus to be a great event but have been taken completely by surprise by the vast numbers of people that are registering. I think after the last two years people are ready for a party in the sun where they can not only network and make new friends, but also learn and grow their business through expert speakers and new contacts. It really is the best place you can do business.”
